Listen, we all know Orcs Must Die, but why must it cost so much to kill said orcs? It never made sense to me and, apparently, never made sense to Steam either because they are selling it for 75% off!
I first heard about this game (I think) on the now defunct Game On! show on TWiT Networks and it looked really cool. Actually, I think they were talking about the original Orcs Must Die! Basically it’s a tower defense game with totally new mechanics. Wikipedia, the book of knowledge, has this to say about it’s predecessor but it still holds true to the second:
It is a tower defense game that eschews the traditional top-down view of similar games, instead using a third-person action-oriented viewpoint
It’s really hard to explain this game in words, so here, watch a gameplay video of the Orcs Must Die! 2 demo with some explanatory commentary!
Pretty awesome, eh? Yeah, I thought so too! This is a great game and for only $3.75, you can’t miss. It’s a steal at the original $15 but saving $11.25 isn’t a bad thing!
Prices are in USD.
